Something is planned for the Beer Store lot

Something is happening at the Beer Store lot, but there are few details. Frances Nunziata’s office will announce the new plans at a meeting at 7 pm on Wednesday, October 30, at 1901 Weston Road. Alas, your humble correspondent has not yet received an invitation.

Nunziata’s office would not provide any detail about the plans or her announcement. The last plan for that site was for “thirty-eight, three-storey townhouse units with integral garages located in seven building blocks.”¹

Thanks to the tipster!


Oddly, YHC was unable to find the plans last night and, to his recollection, had never seen them before, despite fairly regular searches of the planning site. An email this morning from our fair Councillor’s office said that he “may not view the planning documents online” though they might be available in person.

But, lo!, this afternoon, YHC was able to find them online. Perhaps it is merely his inept searching and faulty memory that did not bring them to the fore in the first place. And perhaps the good councillor’s staff did not search themselves. And perhaps the councillor’s noble efforts to save postage by hand-delivering flyers meant that he did not receive one. And perhaps the councillor’s staff is merely trying to build suspense by not revealing plans in advance.

And perhaps your humble correspondent will be pleasantly surprised to see plans for 38 well-designed townhomes with integral garages on the evening of the 30th.

And perhaps not.
